Atelier Doré Is… Christina!

Christina Holevas, Style & Content Editor

Where are you from?
I’m a Jersey girl.

Do you have a nickname?
So many. X, X-Tina, CH, Teens, Teeny, Chris, Chri Chri. I really hate being called Tina but I have some friends who insist on doing so anyway.

What’s your sign?
Virgo, with Sagittarius rising (I’m told that is an important distinction).

Describe yourself in 3 words.
Relaxed but stubborn.

Describe what you do at Atelier Doré in one sentence.
I’m your girl for all things fashion.

Ideal weekend includes…
Waking up on the early side but spending an hour or two in bed (preferably my guy is in there too), coffee, bagels, lots of walking, maybe some swimming, something spontaneous, and a night that begins with french fries and a good martini.

Favorite cocktail?
Martinis forever. Always gin, extra dirty. I’m usually drunk after half of one, but c’est la vie!

Do you have a secret talent?
I’m really good at building Ikea furniture.

Craziest thing you’ve ever done?
I’m a Virgo so I don’t do too many crazy things.

Describe your style in 3 words.
Classic, relaxed, repetitive.

Favorite place you’ve ever been?
Ohhh, that’s difficult. Probably Paris.

Advice to your teenage self?
Tell people to fuck off more! (I stole this from Helen Mirren, but ain’t it the truth?)

One thing you can’t live without?
Google Maps!
